The most popular international certificate in the world

In Year 7, 8 and 9 our students at IST lay the solid foundation for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) program in Year 10 and 11.

Some subjects in Year 7-9 are clustered in areas to provide a broad and balanced education for our students. Subjects and areas that we offer for our students are English, Dutch, German, Spanish, Humanities, Mathematics, Science, Visual Arts, Physical education, Music and Computer Science. In Years 10-11 students work at achieving their IGCSE certificates. In these years sudents are able to choose from an even wider selection of subjects which include English, Dutch, German, Spanish, Economics, Geography, History, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Visual Arts and Physical Education.

The IGCSE program caters for the different ability levels of students by offering core and extended levels in most subjects. Students are supported by IST subject teachers and assessed both formatively and summatively on an ongoing basis, culminating in a final IGCSE exam. IGCSE students are recognized internationally for their problem solving, investigative, independent and cooperative learning skills.
